Wine or Roses

Dear ShortAnswers,
I recently attended the wedding of two middle-aged people who are on their second marriages. Because they have two households full of stuff, they registered with a local wine merchant and requested very specific bottles of wine. Although there was a range of prices, I felt I couldn’t be cheap. But, I’m broke and, two months after the wedding, I still haven’t ordered the gift. I don’t even know if it’s possible to at this point. What’s the right thing to do?

Dear Gifty,
A wedding gift from the heart is appreciated whenever it arrives and whatever it is. Your friends probably intended the wine suggestions as simply suggestions and would be horrified if you stretched beyond your means on their account. Buy what you can afford — be it a bottle stopper or a book about wine and be glad for your friends — that’s what it’s about.
